-Ow! OW!

-Oh, Dave, what's the problem?

0:00:020:00:04

-It's my ankle, it's really swollen.

-Oh, let Dr Rattus have a look.

0:00:040:00:08

Take your shoe off and let's have a peep.

0:00:080:00:10

HE SNIFFS INTENTLY

0:00:120:00:14

Oh-ho-ho!

0:00:150:00:18

Oh, sorry, Dave - can't resist a cheesy sock!

0:00:180:00:22

Anyway, that ankle does look a bit swollen.

0:00:220:00:25

-Yeah, at your ripe old age, it's probably the rheumatism.

-Really?

0:00:250:00:29

Mmm. I'll pop down the pharmacy.

0:00:290:00:31

Don't be too long, Rattus, the show's about to start.

0:00:320:00:35

# If mummies, rats and fleas ain't your thing

0:00:370:00:40

# And you don't like the sound of an exploding king

0:00:400:00:43

# If you're easily scared and don't laugh at poo

0:00:430:00:46

# Better turn off This show ain't for you

0:00:460:00:49

# Still watching? Then let's test your brains

0:00:490:00:53

# With Horrible Histories Gory Games

0:00:530:00:55

# Horrible Histories Gory...

0:00:550:00:57

# ..Games! #

0:00:580:01:00

Hello, and welcome to Gory Games. I'm Dave Lamb.

0:01:000:01:03

And I'm Rattus Rattus.

0:01:030:01:05

Quick, Dave, put that on.

0:01:050:01:07

-It's a cure for rheumatism.

-What is it?

0:01:070:01:09

Well, it's some donkey skin. I got it from a Tudor pharmacy.

0:01:090:01:13

-A Tudor pharmacy?

-Yeah, go on, put it on. What have you got to lose?

0:01:130:01:17

-Er...

-Just my dignity, as it turns out - again!

0:01:200:01:24

Time to meet our Horrible Historians.

0:01:240:01:27

Hi, my name's Ruhama, and I'm from London.

0:01:270:01:29

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:01:290:01:30

Hi, I'm Ben, and I'm from Wiltshire.

0:01:300:01:32

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:01:320:01:33

Hi, I'm Charlotte, and I'm from Leeds.

0:01:330:01:35

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:01:350:01:37

Welcome, everyone. Right, you lot are playing to win Year Spheres.

0:01:390:01:44

The person with the highest year score at the end of the show

0:01:440:01:46

will win a prize fished - or should that be flushed -

0:01:460:01:49

out of the Time Sewer by Rattus Rattus.

0:01:490:01:52

Uh, that's Dr Rattus Rattus MD CBBC PhFlea.

0:01:520:01:57

Yes... Time to crack on with round one.

0:01:570:02:00

Let's find out what it's about by going over to the Gory Grid.

0:02:000:02:03

It's the Measly Middle Ages.

0:02:050:02:08

So, four questions on the Measly Middle Ages coming up.

0:02:080:02:12

The person who gets the most right wins the first Year Sphere.

0:02:120:02:15

And your four Measly Middle Ages topics are...

0:02:150:02:18

So, Ruhama, it's your turn to pick first in this first round.

0:02:230:02:27

-Which would you like?

-Can I have Kings, please?

0:02:270:02:29

In 884, who became the king of Western Francia?

0:02:290:02:34

Show me now, please.

0:02:410:02:43

OK, what's the answer?

0:02:430:02:45

The answer is...

0:02:450:02:46

It's true, or my name isn't Sam the Stinky.

0:02:490:02:52

Which it is. It absolutely is. Well done, Ben, an excellent start.

0:02:520:02:56

-What would you like, Ben?

-I would like Peasants, please.

0:02:560:02:59

In the early Middle Ages, peasants, or churls,

0:02:590:03:02

made their homes out of wattle and daub.

0:03:020:03:05

Wattle was made of long slender hazel branches woven together,

0:03:050:03:09

but what was the daub?

0:03:090:03:11

A mix of water, mud, straw... and what?

0:03:120:03:16

And the answers now, please.

0:03:210:03:24

What's the answer, please?

0:03:240:03:25

The answer is...

0:03:250:03:27

Which is also what holds my clothes together.

0:03:270:03:30

One of the many reasons the Middle Ages is in my top three eras.

0:03:300:03:34

Yes, I can well believe it. Excellent work.

0:03:340:03:37

We're all level pegging again. There are two categories left.

0:03:370:03:40

Charlotte, you get to choose this time.

0:03:400:03:42

-Monsters, please.

-Monsters. That is a question from Rattus Rattus.

0:03:420:03:46

In the Middle Ages... My favourite era!

0:03:460:03:49

..people believed in monsters from far-off lands.

0:03:490:03:54

One such monster was a bonnacon, but what is it?

0:03:540:03:59

Is it A, a giant monkey that spat at you,

0:03:590:04:02

B, a giant rat with a lethal spiky tail,

0:04:030:04:08

or C, a giant bull that attacked you with its poo?

0:04:080:04:12

Show me now, please.

0:04:120:04:14

What's the answer, Rattus?

0:04:150:04:16

The answer is...

0:04:160:04:17

People in the Middle Ages believed a bonnacon was a giant bull

0:04:190:04:23

that used projectile poo as a weapon.

0:04:230:04:25

Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase, beware of the bull!

0:04:260:04:30

So, Ruhama and Ben take a slender lead with one category left.

0:04:320:04:36

Rattus, can I take these donkey ears off now, please?

0:04:360:04:39

Oh, no, no, no, no-one will notice you're wearing them anyway.

0:04:390:04:41

You look just the same. Hee-haw!

0:04:410:04:45

Brilliant. So glad I asked! The final topic is Popes.

0:04:450:04:48

What did Pope Innocent VIII do on his deathbed to try

0:04:480:04:52

and prolong his life?

0:04:520:04:53

..Or C, drink the blood of living children?

0:04:590:05:01

Let's see those answers.

0:05:010:05:02

-What is the answer, please?

-The answer is...

0:05:030:05:06

Pope Innocent VIII drank the blood of living children

0:05:070:05:10

in an attempt to prolong his life.

0:05:100:05:12

Pope, maybe, but innocent? Not so much.

0:05:120:05:16

Eurgh... Well, that's the end of the round.

0:05:160:05:19

Ruhama and Ben, you've done extremely well -

0:05:190:05:22

three points a piece.

0:05:220:05:23

Bad luck, Charlotte. For now, you are history.

0:05:230:05:26

We are entering a tie-breaker situation.

0:05:260:05:28

KLAXON

0:05:280:05:31

Beginning with the letter A,

0:05:310:05:33

what was the name of the mythical English king who had a round table?

0:05:330:05:36

King...?

0:05:360:05:38

Ruhama.

0:05:380:05:39

-Arthur.

-Arthur is correct.

0:05:390:05:41

Well done, Ruhama - you've won the quiz.

0:05:410:05:44

Time to choose your Year Sphere,

0:05:440:05:46

and that means it's time for me to say...

0:05:460:05:48

VOICE ECHOES: All hail the Potty Pyramid!

0:05:480:05:53

Hee-haw!

0:05:530:05:54

TRIUMPHANT CHORAL MUSIC

0:05:540:05:56

Ruhama, help yourself.

0:05:580:05:59

And choose wisely, because AD dates will be added to your total score

0:06:000:06:04

and of course BC dates will be subtracted from it.

0:06:040:06:07

Stick it on the podium. We'll find out what's in there later.

0:06:070:06:10

Now, winning the Middle Ages quiz means that Ruhama is automatically

0:06:100:06:13

through to play the Middle Ages game, but will she be alone

0:06:130:06:16

or will everyone get to play? Let's find out.

0:06:160:06:18

Oh, it's a single-player game,

0:06:220:06:24

so Ruhama, off down the Time Sewer on your own, please.

0:06:240:06:28

-Eurgh, it stinks!

-Yeah, eurgh!

0:06:300:06:32

It's time for a swine of a game

0:06:350:06:37

featuring one of the most unusual musical instruments ever invented.

0:06:370:06:40

Yes, it's time to play...

0:06:400:06:42

Unbelievably, King Louis XI of France actually had one of these.

0:06:450:06:49

Each key poked a spike into a different-sized pig.

0:06:490:06:52

Their squeals formed a musical note. All you have to do is listen

0:06:520:06:55

and repeat a sequence of piggy squeals which gets longer each time.

0:06:550:07:00

Remember, nine in a row and you've got yourself a Year Sphere.

0:07:000:07:03

In three, two, one...

0:07:030:07:06

Squeal!

0:07:060:07:08

Yes, this is a Gory Games classic. The first sequence is four squeals.

0:07:080:07:12

Let's see how she gets on.

0:07:120:07:14

PIGS SQUEAL Yes.

0:07:140:07:16

Lovely. Terrific!

0:07:160:07:18

No problems there. Five this time.

0:07:180:07:21

Remember, she needs to complete a sequence of mine squeals to win.

0:07:210:07:25

Here she goes. PIGS SQUEAL

0:07:280:07:30

Terrific. Yeah.

0:07:300:07:32

Textbook. Smashing.

0:07:320:07:34

Ruhama's making this look easy, isn't she, Rattus?

0:07:360:07:38

She certainly is, Dave.

0:07:380:07:40

I've got an old recording of a pig piano,

0:07:400:07:43

but there's a lot of crackling.

0:07:430:07:45

DAVE CHUCKLES Oh, I say!

0:07:450:07:47

Of course, if the pigs hit the wrong notes, they get a rights roasting!

0:07:470:07:52

Oh...! DAVE LAUGHS

0:07:520:07:53

Hey, Rattus, Rattus, this game is squeal-y good!

0:07:530:07:57

RATTUS SIGHS

0:07:570:07:59

Sque... Squeal-y good... OK...

0:07:590:08:02

Let's get back to the game, shall we?

0:08:020:08:04

-Ruhama's doing extremely well, here. That's one. That's two.

-Two.

0:08:040:08:08

-PIG SQUEALS Three. Successful.

-Three.

0:08:080:08:11

-Four.

-Four.

0:08:110:08:12

-Yes, five.

-Five.

0:08:120:08:14

-Yes, six.

-Six!

0:08:160:08:18

-Seven!

-Seven!

-She is cruising along here, isn't she?

0:08:180:08:22

-Eight to come next. Can she do it, Rattus - yes or no?

-Yes!

0:08:220:08:26

I've put him on the spot. He thinks she's going to do it.

0:08:260:08:29

Let's find out.

0:08:290:08:31

Yes.

0:08:310:08:33

Yes, Rattus!

0:08:330:08:35

-SQUELCHING Oh!

-Oh!

-And there's so much poo!

0:08:350:08:38

It was a fantastic effort, but there's no Year Sphere.

0:08:380:08:41

Let's get Ruhama's reaction.

0:08:410:08:43

It was really annoying to get so close and not finish it properly,

0:08:430:08:48

and it was horrible being squirted by the poo cos it was so disgusting.

0:08:480:08:53

Oh, bad luck, Ruhama. Bad luck.

0:08:530:08:55

No Year Sphere this time, but plenty more still on offer.

0:08:550:08:59

-Dave, how's the ankle?

-Oh, it's not good, Rattus. It's no better.

0:08:590:09:02

Actually, this is coming off. HE SPLUTTERS

0:09:020:09:05

Look, I think I know why that didn't work.

0:09:050:09:08

-Because it was a load of old hocus-pocus nonsense?

-No.

0:09:080:09:11

You've got gout!

0:09:110:09:13

So I've also picked up this Tudor cure.

0:09:130:09:16

It's a mix of worms, pig marrow and herbs

0:09:160:09:19

all brought together with a red-haired dog.

0:09:190:09:21

-Oh, that sounds terrible.

-Just rub some on your foot.

0:09:210:09:25

No, Rattus, get off me!

0:09:250:09:27

-Bad rodent! Bad rodent!

-There we are. How does that feel?

0:09:270:09:30

Well, slippy. Mostly slippy...!

0:09:300:09:32

Oh! Argh!

0:09:320:09:34

Oh, great! Now I've got a headache as well.

0:09:340:09:39

Thank you, Dr Rattus!

0:09:390:09:41

GIGGLING

0:09:410:09:43

On to round two.

0:09:430:09:44

To find out what's next, it's over to the Gory Grid.

0:09:440:09:47

It's the Awful Egyptians.

0:09:500:09:52

And here are your awful Egyptian topics.

0:09:530:09:56

So, Ben, it's your turn to start us off this time.

0:10:020:10:04

Which one of those do you fancy?

0:10:040:10:06

I'll pick Tutankhamun, please.

0:10:060:10:08

True or false - Tutankhamun had his own personal nose picker that

0:10:080:10:12

would pick bogies from his nose?

0:10:120:10:14

Show me now, please. What's the answer?

0:10:140:10:17

It's...true!

0:10:170:10:18

And the Pharaoh's nose picker was paid three head of cattle.

0:10:180:10:22

-As well as all the bogeys he could eat.

-Well played, everybody.

0:10:220:10:25

That's a point a piece. A very, very good start indeed.

0:10:250:10:29

-Charlotte, it's your turn to pick.

-War, please.

-War.

0:10:290:10:32

Let's hear that question.

0:10:320:10:34

True or false - the ancient Egyptians were almost

0:10:340:10:37

always at war, fighting other nations?

0:10:370:10:40

Is that true, or is that false? Show me now, please.

0:10:400:10:43

What's the answer, please?

0:10:430:10:45

It's...false.

0:10:450:10:46

The deserts around Egypt meant it had no direct neighbours,

0:10:460:10:50

so no constant military threat.

0:10:500:10:52

Smug face!

0:10:520:10:54

Wow, well played, Ruhama. Another point for you there.

0:10:540:10:57

-And it's your turn to pick a topic.

-Can I have Cleopatra, please?

0:10:570:11:01

True or false - Cleopatra bathed in camel's milk to keep her skin soft?

0:11:010:11:06

Is that true, or is that false? Show me now, please.

0:11:060:11:09

Everybody thinks it's true. What's the answer, please?

0:11:090:11:11

It's...false.

0:11:110:11:13

Cleopatra bathed in donkey's milk. Camel's milk - as if!

0:11:150:11:20

I've been known to shower in donkey's wee.

0:11:200:11:22

That's a lovely image I'm not getting rid of quickly.

0:11:220:11:24

Thanks for that, Rattus.

0:11:240:11:26

Excellent. One more topic left in this round. Everything to play for.

0:11:260:11:30

It's on Ramesses II, and it is a prop question.

0:11:300:11:33

Prop question!

0:11:330:11:34

BOTH: Prop question, prop question!

0:11:340:11:36

That is a bull's tail.

0:11:360:11:39

Pharaoh Ramesses II wore a bull's tail pinned to his back -

0:11:390:11:45

is that true, or is that false? Show me now, please.

0:11:450:11:48

The answer is...that it is true.

0:11:490:11:51

As part of his kingly apparel,

0:11:510:11:53

Ramesses II did wear a bull's tail pinned to his back.

0:11:530:11:57

Quite right, too!

0:11:570:11:59

All great leaders should have something pinned to their back.

0:11:590:12:02

Oh, hang on...

0:12:020:12:04

Is there anything pinned to my...? Is there anything pinned to my back?

0:12:050:12:09

Is...? Come on, be honest. Is there anything pinched to my back? No?

0:12:090:12:13

-No, there isn't?

-No.

-There isn't!

0:12:130:12:14

Well, you missed a trick there, Rattus. Missed a trick!

0:12:140:12:17

There's a point a piece.

0:12:170:12:19

And at the end of that round, we can see that Ruhama,

0:12:190:12:22

you have won yourself another Year Sphere.

0:12:220:12:24

Go and pick it up.

0:12:240:12:26

TRIUMPHANT CHORAL MUSIC

0:12:260:12:28

OK, Ruhama, you're through to play the Egyptian game, but will

0:12:310:12:34

it be just you, or will the others get to play too?

0:12:340:12:36

Let's find out.

0:12:360:12:38

Yeah! It's an all-play game, so come on, all of you down the Time Sewer.

0:12:410:12:46

It stinks!

0:12:470:12:49

Poo-ee!

0:12:490:12:50

This next game consists of a pile of blocks that have to be

0:12:530:12:56

transformed into three spectacular pyramids.

0:12:560:12:59

It's a puzzle to make pyramids, so we've called it...

0:12:590:13:02

It's important to get everything in the right order,

0:13:050:13:07

otherwise your pyramid will be bang out of order. OK, let's do this.

0:13:070:13:11

In three, two, one...

0:13:110:13:13

HORN SOUNDS Go!

0:13:130:13:15

We've made a small but fiendish change to this game, Rattus.

0:13:150:13:17

Now the contestants' blocks are all piled up at the back.

0:13:170:13:20

They've got to find the correct pieces to build with,

0:13:200:13:23

and everyone is getting their bases in order.

0:13:230:13:26

But oh, my goodness, they've woken up some mummies,

0:13:260:13:29

and boy, do they look grumpy!

0:13:290:13:30

-Well, wouldn't you be if you were woken up during a nap?

-I would, yes.

0:13:300:13:34

Ruhama backing away there from that mummy, clinging to her piece.

0:13:340:13:38

Well, Charlotte's ploughing on regardless.

0:13:380:13:40

And it looks like the mummies are off to scare someone else.

0:13:400:13:44

Well, what an interesting interlude that was.

0:13:440:13:46

It's very close at the moment, isn't it?

0:13:460:13:48

Everyone on the second layer.

0:13:480:13:49

Pyramids, of course, the last resting place

0:13:490:13:51

for the great Egyptian Pharaohs.

0:13:510:13:53

Dave, a little fact - great rat kings are also buried in pyramids.

0:13:530:13:57

-Of poo?

-Of course.

-Nice. I thought they might be.

0:13:570:14:01

I really thought... Did you see that little dance from Ben there?

0:14:010:14:05

A little premature celebration, I thought.

0:14:050:14:07

Well, you know, who knows? He might actually win it, Rattus.

0:14:070:14:11

You never, never know, not with the giant pyramids.

0:14:110:14:14

It's a bit early at this stage of the game, Dave, to be honest.

0:14:140:14:17

I agree with you. Ruhama... Oh! Did you see her kick that off...?

0:14:170:14:19

-Give it a good kick!

-Just hoofed it one.

0:14:190:14:21

Just hoofed it one, and rightly so, in my opinion.

0:14:210:14:24

But look at that - you can see behind that Ben...

0:14:240:14:27

I mean, Charlotte's doing well, but Ben is high up here.

0:14:270:14:30

He is about to start his third layer.

0:14:300:14:32

Look at him, he's picking up two pieces at once.

0:14:320:14:35

I mean, we're going to consult with the rule book - is that cheating?

0:14:350:14:38

-PAGES RUSTLE

-It is perfectly legal, Dave.

0:14:380:14:40

It is legal - I've checked with the rule book. That's above board.

0:14:400:14:44

But look at them, they're neck and neck.

0:14:440:14:46

It's even-stevens, they're at loggerheads,

0:14:460:14:48

they're all on the same storey of the pyramid.

0:14:480:14:51

But no! Ben's just knocked half of his down,

0:14:510:14:54

and out of nowhere, look at Ruhama!

0:14:540:14:56

She's come from nowhere. There goes the top piece!

0:14:560:14:59

She is the best Egyptian. Let's hear what she thought.

0:14:590:15:03

I felt the pressure because Ben and Charlotte were catching up,

0:15:030:15:06

and I tried to run everywhere to get the pieces, and it was really hard.

0:15:060:15:09

How about those mummies, Ben?

0:15:090:15:11

They did actually put me off quite...a bit...

0:15:110:15:13

MUMMY GROANS

0:15:130:15:15

Oh, well done, everybody. Well done. Congratulations, Ruhama.

0:15:150:15:20

Help yourself to another Year Sphere.

0:15:200:15:22

TRIUMPHANT CHORAL MUSIC

0:15:220:15:23

Superb work. What's in there, we'll find out later.

0:15:230:15:27

-Hello, Rattus, what is this?

-Oh, it's for your headache, Dave.

0:15:270:15:31

I've been to a Roman pharmacy this time.

0:15:310:15:33

Just pop your hand in there.

0:15:330:15:35

It's not made from some other poor dead creature, is it?

0:15:360:15:38

Absolutely not.

0:15:380:15:41

HE YOWLS, ELECTRICITY BUZZES

0:15:420:15:44

Argh!

0:15:440:15:46

It's a live one. An electric eel - a Roman cure for headaches.

0:15:470:15:52

Ow!

0:15:520:15:54

OW!

0:15:540:15:55

Ow...

0:15:550:15:57

-Forgotten about the headache, though, haven't you?

-WHIMPERS: Ow...

0:15:570:16:00

Right, round three. Over to the Gory Grid to find out what's up next.

0:16:000:16:04

It's the Awesome USA.

0:16:050:16:09

So, four questions, as always,

0:16:090:16:11

and here are your four Awesome USA topics.

0:16:110:16:14

So, Charlotte, it's your turn to lead us off.

0:16:200:16:22

-Which of those would you like?

-Big Nose George, please.

0:16:220:16:24

Big Nose George. OK, then.

0:16:240:16:26

True or false - Wild West outlaw Big Nose George was arrested

0:16:260:16:31

and hanged in 1881, and afterwards, his skin was made into a saddle?

0:16:310:16:36

Is that true, or is that false? Show me now, please.

0:16:360:16:39

Let's find out if they're all right, or if they're all wrong.

0:16:390:16:42

It's...false.

0:16:420:16:44

Big Nose George's skin was turned into a pair of shoes.

0:16:440:16:48

The new Governor of Wyoming then wore

0:16:480:16:50

the shoes at a ball in his honour.

0:16:500:16:53

Whoa... Bad vibes, man.

0:16:530:16:56

No points there, I'm afraid, everybody.

0:16:560:16:57

Ruhama, it's your turn to pick.

0:16:570:16:59

Can I have Black Bart, please?

0:16:590:17:01

You certainly can.

0:17:010:17:03

True or false - the famous Wild West outlaw Black Bart would

0:17:030:17:08

leave behind poems after robbing stagecoaches?

0:17:080:17:11

Is that true, or is that false? Show me, please.

0:17:110:17:13

They all think it's true. Are they right this time?

0:17:150:17:17

It's...true.

0:17:170:17:18

Out of sight, man!

0:17:200:17:21

Imagine that, the polite Black Bart has taken your treasure,

0:17:210:17:25

No need to thank me, it was my pleasure.

0:17:250:17:27

Can't think of anything that rhymes with Bart. Hold on, I've got it!

0:17:270:17:31

HE BREAKS WIND

0:17:310:17:33

So sorry you had to hear that. That's a point in a piece, though,

0:17:350:17:38

a point a piece. Lovely stuff. And Ben, it's your turn to pick.

0:17:380:17:42

-I'd like to pick Lincoln, please.

-Now that is a prop question.

0:17:420:17:48

Prop question, prop question, prop question!

0:17:480:17:51

This is an Abraham Lincoln beard and hat, in that order.

0:17:510:17:55

And here is your question.

0:17:550:17:56

True or false - Abraham Lincoln grew his famous beard

0:17:560:18:00

because he was told to do so in a letter from an 88-year-old granny?

0:18:000:18:04

Is that true, or is that false? Let's have a look.

0:18:040:18:07

You know that beard suits you, Dave? Hides your face a bit.

0:18:070:18:10

Thanks for that.

0:18:100:18:12

And I can tell you, the answer is,

0:18:120:18:14

it's false.

0:18:140:18:15

Congratulations.

0:18:150:18:16

Lincoln was told to grow his beard

0:18:160:18:18

in a letter from an 11-year-old girl.

0:18:180:18:20

And I think if all presidents took the advice of an 11-year-old girl,

0:18:200:18:24

the world would be a safer place.

0:18:240:18:26

Congratulations, there's a point a piece there.

0:18:260:18:28

It's all to play for. Very exciting, one topic left.

0:18:280:18:32

It is a question from Rattus Rattus.

0:18:320:18:33

True or false? In 1607, the first settlers founded Jamestown,

0:18:330:18:39

but they had no reliable food supply and starvation soon set in.

0:18:390:18:44

By 1609, some settlers got so hungry, they ate human poo.

0:18:440:18:50

Is that true, or is that false? Show me now, please.

0:18:500:18:53

Rattus, what's the answer?

0:18:530:18:56

-It's true!

-Eurgh!

-What's the problem?

0:18:560:19:01

What do you mean, what's the problem?! Crikey. Eurgh!

0:19:010:19:05

Well, that's a point for Ben and a point for Charlotte.

0:19:050:19:08

And that means we are in a tie-breaker situation.

0:19:080:19:13

KLAXON

0:19:130:19:15

Beginning with the letter W, the home of the President

0:19:150:19:18

of the United States is called the WHAT House?

0:19:180:19:20

-Ben.

-The White House.

0:19:200:19:22

The White House is correct. Well done, Ben.

0:19:220:19:24

Help yourself to a Year Sphere.

0:19:240:19:26

TRIUMPHANT CHORAL MUSIC

0:19:260:19:30

OK, Ben, as the winner of the Awesome USA quiz,

0:19:310:19:34

you're through to play the Awesome USA game.

0:19:340:19:37

But will it be just you, or is everyone else coming along?

0:19:370:19:39

Let's find out.

0:19:390:19:41

Oh, it's a single-player game, so off you go down the Time Sewer.

0:19:430:19:46

Ooh, iffy!

0:19:470:19:49

It's America, 1899,

0:19:510:19:53

and you're robbing a train with the notorious Wild Bunch.

0:19:530:19:55

Yes, it's time to play...

0:19:550:19:57

Get the carriage door open to reveal three safes,

0:20:010:20:03

attach the right cable and blow them up

0:20:030:20:05

until you find the one with the cash.

0:20:050:20:08

Then grab 50,000 before the time runs out to get

0:20:080:20:11

yourself a Year Sphere.

0:20:110:20:12

Three, two, one...

0:20:120:20:15

TRAIN HORN

0:20:150:20:16

Ben steps off his imaginary horse and tries to get into the carriage.

0:20:160:20:20

Several bolts, of course, to get through,

0:20:200:20:22

but he's making short work of them, and he is in.

0:20:220:20:25

Straight to the barrel.

0:20:250:20:26

Now, he tosses rope after rope aside until he finds the one he likes.

0:20:260:20:31

Ooh, I like that one too! It's like a big long lovely tail.

0:20:310:20:35

Crikey, I'd hate to meet the rat that that tail belongs to.

0:20:350:20:38

Well, he's doing excellently here.

0:20:380:20:39

The rope's connected, he's heading back.

0:20:390:20:41

Here it comes, Rattus, already!

0:20:410:20:43

-Ka-boom!

-But there's nothing in there.

0:20:430:20:45

He's going to have to go again. He already has. Crikey!

0:20:450:20:48

He's wasting no time here. Second explosion coming.

0:20:480:20:51

Boom!

0:20:510:20:53

Empty again. I think Ben just likes blowing things up, Rattus.

0:20:530:20:58

-It's got to be in this one, hasn't it?

-Surely.

-It absolutely has to be.

0:20:580:21:01

-Here we go.

-Boom!

0:21:010:21:03

Well, I think Ben has used too much dynamite -

0:21:030:21:05

just like the real Wild Bunch.

0:21:050:21:07

I think you might be right, Rattus.

0:21:070:21:09

There is cash everywhere, but keep your eye on that cash-o-meter,

0:21:090:21:11

because he's got to get 50,000 into his over-the-shoulder bag

0:21:110:21:15

to win the Year Sphere.

0:21:150:21:17

Is he going to do this? He's still got 14 seconds. Keep your eyes left.

0:21:170:21:23

The cash is creeping up, it's filling up fast.

0:21:230:21:25

He's going to do it, I think, but it's going to be close. Yes!

0:21:250:21:30

Benny the Bandit has won himself a Year Sphere. Marvellous stuff.

0:21:300:21:34

Any plans for all that dosh, fella?

0:21:360:21:38

Now I've got all this money,

0:21:380:21:39

I'm probably going to spend it on a house,

0:21:390:21:42

maybe on some new furniture, but definitely a gold bar.

0:21:420:21:47

Gold bar - nice.

0:21:470:21:48

Congratulations, Ben. Superb work.

0:21:480:21:50

Help yourself to another Year Sphere.

0:21:500:21:53

Superb, superb, superb.

0:21:530:21:54

TRIUMPHANT CHORAL MUSIC

0:21:540:21:57

Oh, Rattus, what is that?!

0:21:590:22:01

Well, it's a mixture of wine and goat poo -

0:22:010:22:05

a Roman cure for broken ribs.

0:22:050:22:07

There is nothing wrong with my ribs.

0:22:070:22:10

No, but I think I've broken some of me own...

0:22:100:22:12

..laughing at you!

0:22:120:22:14

RATTUS LAUGHS

0:22:140:22:16

Oh, oh, oh, quick, Dave, rub on, rub on some of the goat poo, go on.

0:22:160:22:20

I'm not touching you with that.

0:22:200:22:21

I mean, it's bad enough touching you without that,

0:22:210:22:23

but I'm not touching you with that. All right, have we got that?

0:22:230:22:26

OK, it's the final round, so it's over to the Gory Grid

0:22:260:22:28

to find out what we've got.

0:22:280:22:29

It's the Terrible Tudors.

0:22:310:22:33

As ever, no quiz - just our big, all-play endgame.

0:22:330:22:38

So it's back down the Time Sewer with the lot of you, please.

0:22:380:22:41

-Bye.

-Thank you, Charlotte. Bye.

-Woo!

0:22:410:22:43

King Henry the Eighth? More like King Henry the ATE!

0:22:460:22:50

It's time to play...

0:22:500:22:51

His Royal Roundness certainly liked his grub,

0:22:540:22:56

so fling the pies into his gob.

0:22:560:22:58

Whoever gets the most pies into his kingly cakehole

0:22:580:23:01

within the time limit gets the Year Sphere.

0:23:010:23:04

In three, two, one...

0:23:040:23:07

KLAXON Feed the monster!

0:23:070:23:09

It's pies all round, as everybody lines up.

0:23:090:23:14

And they all miss.

0:23:140:23:15

-That's a disappointing start, wasn't it, Rattus?

-It is, I'm afraid, Dave.

0:23:150:23:18

Someone's got to score first. Who's it going to be?

0:23:180:23:20

It's Ben!

0:23:200:23:21

Ben gets us off the mark, thankfully.

0:23:210:23:23

That was looking like 0-0 for a while there.

0:23:230:23:26

But Ruhama's scored now. She's notched...

0:23:260:23:29

Just Charlotte, to see if she can catch up.

0:23:290:23:31

And right on cue, she most certainly does.

0:23:310:23:35

Well, superb stuff this, it's close at the top.

0:23:350:23:38

Charlotte forges into the lead.

0:23:380:23:39

They're throwing these like Frisbees, aren't they, Rattus?

0:23:390:23:42

They certainly are, Dave.

0:23:420:23:43

And a little tip here, viewers - unlike pies,

0:23:430:23:45

Frisbees are not good to eat. I've tried, they're way too plasticky.

0:23:450:23:49

Well, what passes for words of wisdom from Rattus there.

0:23:490:23:52

Ruhama scores again. Well...

0:23:540:23:56

Oh, and Charlotte replies instantly!

0:23:560:23:59

That is superb pie-ing.

0:23:590:24:01

BELL TOLLS

0:24:010:24:03

And there, the toll of the bell.

0:24:030:24:05

Charlotte makes it four, look! Wonderful stuff.

0:24:050:24:07

Did they really have inflatables back in Tudor times, Dave?

0:24:070:24:10

Yes - Henry's stomach!

0:24:100:24:12

RATTUS LAUGHS

0:24:120:24:14

Oh, I love it when you laugh at my jokes.

0:24:140:24:16

It makes me feel all warm inside.

0:24:160:24:17

And Ruhama gets a pie, and that's three.

0:24:170:24:21

Followed by Ben. Yes, nice.

0:24:210:24:22

That's Ben on two, but is it too little too late?

0:24:220:24:26

A last frantic effort from everyone. Feeding time is nearly over.

0:24:260:24:29

KLAXON

0:24:290:24:30

Oh, it's completely over, and Charlotte wins the Year Sphere.

0:24:300:24:33

Did that make you hungry, Charlotte?

0:24:330:24:34

I love pies.

0:24:340:24:36

I love apple pies, any type of pie.

0:24:360:24:39

-Not these kind of pies.

-Who would?

0:24:390:24:41

Tremendous work.

0:24:420:24:44

Congratulations, Charlotte, help yourself to the final Year Sphere.

0:24:440:24:48

TRIUMPHANT CHORAL MUSIC

0:24:480:24:50

So, it's time for us to count up those Year Spheres,

0:24:500:24:54

and remember, AD dates are added, and BC dates are subtracted.

0:24:540:24:59

OK, Ruhama, let's have a look at that first one of yours.

0:24:590:25:02

Oh! It's a BC. That could bring the others into the game.

0:25:040:25:09

But it's not a disaster. 287 BC - Archimedes was born that year.

0:25:090:25:14

Let's have a look at the second one.

0:25:140:25:16

That's a better one. 1452 AD -

0:25:180:25:20

Leonardo da Vinci was born that year.

0:25:200:25:22

And that third and final one.

0:25:220:25:24

Oh, it's another BC, but again, it's a small one.

0:25:270:25:30

27 BC this time.

0:25:300:25:31

Caesar Augustus became the first Roman emperor that year.

0:25:310:25:35

So you're in the positive,

0:25:350:25:36

but it does open the door for the other two.

0:25:360:25:38

Ben, let's have a look at your first sphere.

0:25:380:25:41

Ooh, again, it's small but it's positive.

0:25:420:25:44

79 AD - Mount Vesuvius erupted that year.

0:25:440:25:48

And your second one, please, Ben.

0:25:480:25:50

Now, that's solid.

0:25:510:25:52

1845 AD - the great potato famine

0:25:520:25:55

began in Ireland that year.

0:25:550:25:57

You're nicely in the positive, but you can be caught.

0:25:570:26:00

Now, Charlotte, I'm going to come and help you with yours.

0:26:000:26:03

Let's have a look at this.

0:26:030:26:04

I can hardly watch...

0:26:060:26:07

1859 AD. Excellent.

0:26:070:26:11

The pony express was invented in America that year.

0:26:110:26:15

By the thinnest of margins, it is Ben who is this week's winner,

0:26:150:26:19

with a total of 1,924 points.

0:26:190:26:23

So, congratulations, Ben.

0:26:230:26:25

Time for you to collect your "prize",

0:26:250:26:28

as selected by Rattus Rattus.

0:26:280:26:30

Please tell me this is not another one of your terrible cures, Rattus.

0:26:320:26:36

Well, Dave, it's the fat of a lion, a hippo, a crocodile,

0:26:360:26:41

0:26:440:26:48

No, Rattus, no. I am not trying it.

0:26:480:26:52

-Careful!

-There you go, Ben.

0:26:520:26:54

Try not to get any of it on you. Yes, yes, good reaction.

0:26:540:26:57

-Oh...

-Careful, Dave, you've spilt a bit.

-What?!

0:26:580:27:01

Oh!

0:27:010:27:03

Argh! Ow!

0:27:050:27:07

-Ooh, I know some good cures!

-No, Rat...! No!

-Bye.

-Bye.

-Hope you don't get too messy.

0:27:220:27:24

I hope you're feeling guilty, Rattus.

0:27:250:27:27

Well, I don't know. What does feeling guilty feel like?

0:27:270:27:30

Oh, I guess you'll never know.

0:27:300:27:31

Eurgh...

0:27:330:27:34

-I've been Dave Lamb.

-I've been Dr Rattus Rattus.

0:27:350:27:39

-And you've been watching Gory Games!
